Synopsis

Making up, making out, and tracking a murderer…

Rearranging your cheating boyfriend’s family jewels isn’t a crime—unless your boyfriend is an Arizona state senator. And he happens to have a bullet in his chest.

Caught at the scene of the crime, Maggie Mae Castro is the only suspect, and the only one who saw the senator’s real killer—the skank ho he was cheating on her with.

FBI Special Agent Clive Poole has been shadowing the senator’s every move for nearly a year. He’s wanted Maggie from afar and knows she didn’t kill the senator, but with temptation close enough to touch, it’s now his job to protect her from danger.

Maggie finds herself falling for a man who knows everything about her, from her juvie record to her shoe size. But when they learn the senator was not what he seemed, and Maggie becomes the target of not one, but two killers bent on hiding their secrets, keeping Maggie safe is going to be even more difficult for Clive than sticking to his "hands off" policy.

Contains inappropriate make-out sessions, flying bullets, a senator with secrets, designer shoe abuse, and a vegetarian Special Agent who’s incredibly attracted to a woman who slathers her bacon cheeseburgers with PB&J. We’re talking about Maggie Mae Castro here—you never know what's going to go down.

My Review

3.5 Giggling at Misadventure Stars!

I’m not a big fan of instalove in general, but, yeah, that first kiss between the FBI special agent and his charge, in a closet at the funeral of the woman’s boyfriend? Beyond inappropriate and not funny.

The rest of the book was most definitely funny, and there were some laugh-out-loud moments while poor Maggie’s world exploded, literally and figuratively.

I don’t think I’ll be actively looking for more from this series, but I definitely enjoyed the hour it took to read this little book.
